Amazing view of newly emerged Atala’s and still lots more caterpillars and pupa. I counted 98 butterflies, but there were probably more. Most in parking lot.
Not sure on the kind of skippers - photo attached of each of the 2 I saw (could be same species or diff) - marked them as three spotted.
Saw Zebra eggs and cats.
